Hello everyone. Robin is in Alabama and has graciously given me permission to post on her blog while she is gone.
Every once in a while I will think "if I had a blog I would post on (fill in the blank) but I'm not doing a great job remembering any of it so.... hum. I am debating whether to be profound or to be frivolous.
I have decided. I shall take the middle road (you know, the one that tries to please everyone and in the end pleases no one).
Mom and I are watching Pride and Prejudice this week while Robin is gone, because Robin is heartily sick of it, and I'm not. I was struck anew with the quality of conversation that Jane Austin gives her characters. (I am always delighted by deep conversation) The utter civility expressed on every occasion (even the occasion of having a proposal refused) also impresses me. I shall insert here for your enjoyment one of my favorite classic Jane Austin conversations:
Alas, it is too long to copy and paste, so I shall post the link: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Chapter 10
If anyone cares they can go read it, and if not, it will be no loss.
Perhaps I should say more on the subject, but I shan't, because I have other things to do, and time, cruel time, flies on, headless of my attempts at blogging. Besides, I have no more to say
Fare thee well, good friends,
